Joaquin Phoenix brings his 'Joker' to Venice

Joaquin Phoenix brings his 'Joker' to Venice”

Screen Daily's Tim Grierson said the film may not have the same massive box office success as other comic book movies, but it predicted "rave reviews for Phoenix's unnerving portrayal should entice viewers who are exhausted of superhero films but might be open to something a little more character-driven and psychologically complex".

He has a past of mental troubles and psychiatric hospitalization, and struggles to make ends meet and keep his peace of mind.

The passage from the man Arthur to the mask Joker is gradually and attentively developed, both emotionally and mentally.

Joker starring Joaquin Phoenix is set to be an origin story.

Earlier today, Phoenix said he was drawn to the project because "we were going to approach it in our own way".

An in-depth effort to shape Joker's laughter - a sort of chilling signature of the fictional character - was also carried out by the actor.

Phoenix described the cackle he created for the character as "something that's nearly painful".

"I didn't think I could do it".

The director stressed shaping the role of Arthur-Joker was "a kind of work that has never really stopped".

Joaquin Phoenix yesterday said he wanted to create a unique Joker for his star turn as one of cinema's most recognisable villains, with an unidentifiable psychological profile and an "almost painful" take on his trademark cackle. Sources say that the actor Joaquin Phoenix has lost a massive amount of weight to portray this iconic role.

I'm totally sold after that, but there's more. As Arthur ekes out a life in Gotham City caring for his ailing mother, Penny Fleck (Frances Conroy), and developing a connection to single mom Sophie Dumond (Zazie Beetz), his dreams of being a comedian begin to spiral out of control after he is targeted by popular late-night TV show host Murray Franklin (Robert DeNiro).
